*Links:

The home page of the former church Website (which was at www.trinitylenox.org, but was hijacked between Sep.2020 and Feb.2021) had a rotating series of pictures which included both current and historical views of the building and tower.  But this chime wasn't mentioned anywhere.
You can find an archived version here.

The Wikipedia article about the church has a photo of it, in which a rack of 5 tubular bells can be seen in the tower.

The church's Facebook presence has contact information.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of its maker.
